As Guterres Grabs 2d UN Term Portugal Hands Dissident Names To China Whistleblower Notes

By Matthew Russell Lee Exclusive Patreon Song
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 – How corrupt and undemocratic is today's United Nations? As banned Inner City Press reported on May 15, 2021, they have sent Swiss police to the house of a whistleblower who, like Inner City Press, timely filed to oppose a second term for Antonio Guterres.

Now as Guterres has grabbed that second term by blocking all opponents, including a former president of Ecuador, this:

Dear Kim,  A reminder that I await your response. Do you still refuse to implement the instructions of the SG, the recommendations of the Special Rapporteur, recommendations of successive Ethics Officers, and consistent recommendations of medical professionals that I have a job with functions relevant to my expertise and experience and a workplan?  On what basis am I prohibited from working? The Medical Board cancelled a meeting with me in November 2020, quite literally claiming an inability to use telephones (perhaps an assistant could make the call and pass them the phone?), so it can be no more "medical" than the illegal faking of an emergency to send police to my home.  I'm sure you have seen that the Portuguese press, on the eve of Mr. Guterres' reappointment, are rather exercised about the Lisbon authorities passing names of dissidents to the Chinese and other governments: here

 A significantly more ethical response than any the UN has yet mustered. Congratulations, by the way, on the decision of the Portuguese judge to refuse my motion that the Administration confirm its policy - is it as claimed in court that names are, like in Lisbon, handed to China, or is it as claimed in public that this stopped? I think the dissidents deserve a response so they can assess danger.  Regards, Emma Reilly."

We publish this while Guterres is  banning the Press for the 1083rd day for daring to ask about his finances and failures. And there will be more - watch this site.

 As a test - and to raise the issue of the UN's lack of content neutral media access rules, lack of a Freedom of Information Act (fought for the Free UN Coalition for Access) and lack of scruples - Inner City Press on the morning of February 26 submitted a signed letter and C.V. to the PGA's Office and to Varma.  Since then, dodging and blockage, now of six

 Your Excellencies,   Kindly find attached my application for the post of Secretary-General, along with a document outlining accountability gaps that serves as my vision statement.  As I note in my cover letter, I intend this application to raise necessary questions about UN reform, ensuring that election by acclamation is not abused to further weaken accountability of UN staff who commit misconduct.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Kind regards, Emma Reilly.

  And how did Emma Reilly hear back from the UN of Guterres? She says they sent Swiss Police to her home, ironically while she was supposed to be on a Zoom meeting about whistleblowers, see here.

It's called swatting. This is how corrupt the UN has become under Guterres, who Emma Reilly says should resign. Inner City Press - and many others - agree. Watch this site.
